Depending on what you are overclocked to I would say under full load 65 is perfectly acceptable. Even top end air coolers on a overclocked system can push those temps.

I've had a domino & a ALC, was so so impressed with them ...

And fyi, availability of there 240 + cost made little to no peaple interested in the 240 coolit ones.

NOW there's more dual fan top exausted cases out there like the 690 + if I read right $109-119us msrp peaple WILL be interested in it.

The problem is as others have pointed out ... self sealed are not close enought to custom built wc setups preformance to warrent interest + cheaper large fanned heatsinks make it hard to want to look at 1.

My point exactly! You have your system quite overclocked for that type of a cooler. And I bet if you put a high end cooler on it (air) you would see relatively close to the same temps

Umm...nope. CoolIT is now the OEM for Corsair yes (H60 was the first collaboration), BUT its more like this is based of the Eco II...not the original Eco. There are some minor differences. TBH, it would be like saying the Corsair H series PSU is nothing but a Seasonic rebadge...those scammers. /sarcasm

Hell an even better example is saying that Apple MB Pro laptops are nothing but Asus'...those scammers.

Its a very simplistic way of looking at things. Take off your blinders, look at the bigger picture. Corsair gets better coolers (compared to Asetek), CoolIT get a BIG contract and the customer gets Corsair Customer Service and warranty (a VERY big deal) AND all the benefits of CoolIT (ease of installation, performance etc). Its win win from a customers POV.

OEMing is part and parcel of the biz. Always has been....always will be.

Frankly I could care less if it is just a CoolIT 240. Because to me it is a Cosair H100 and while internally it may be made by the same people and may be almost the same, it still has the Corsair touch such as customer service and warranty.

What will really matter to me is how well it can perform and yes I would like to see a comparison between this and the CoolIT 240, just to see if there is any difference.

I would love the H100, but I would have to mount it externally on my case to get it to fit I think.... I am interested in the H80 and would be interested in any gpu mounted ones... my xfire setup would benefit from the extra breathing room. I have a H50 right now with Noctua fans in a push pull, works well but still gets warm under full load video encoding.

It only includes two 120mm fans. Does anyone know if you are able to mount two more on the other side for push/pull?

I can't see why not. You will just have to pick up a couple extra screws from Ye Olde Hardware store first...as I doubt they include 16 screws.
